Suppressed stropha in Victimae paschali laudes

St. Pius V suppressed this verse in 1570:

[Credendum est magis soli
Mariae veraci
Quam Judaeorum Turbae fallaci.]

([Happy they who bear the witness
Mary's word believing
above the tales of Jewry deceiving.])

I wonder if the verse was in the original text, but I imagine St. Pius V suppressed the verse to discourage actual antisemitism.

The verse does say something true though since the Gospel of St. Matthew mentions the lie spread among the Jews concerning Our Lord's Resurrection.

Doubtful since Pius V promulgated Hebraeorum Gens that expelled all Jews from the Papal States unless they should convert to Christianity.



“The Jewish people fell from the heights because of their faithlessness and condemned their Redeemer to a shameful death. Their godlessness has assumed such forms that, for the salvation of our own people, it becomes necessary to prevent their disease. Besides usury, through which Jews everywhere have sucked dry the property of impoverished Christians, they are accomplices of thieves and robbers; and the most damaging aspect of the matter is that they allure the unsuspecting through magical incantations, superstition, and witchcraft to the Synagogue of Satan and boast of being able to predict the future. We have carefully investigated how this revolting sect abuses the name of Christ and how harmful they are to those whose life is threatened by their deceit.

On account of these and other serious matters, and because of the gravity of their crimes which increase day to day more and more, We order that, within 90 days, all Jews in our entire earthly realm of justice – in all towns, districts, and places – must depart these regions. After this time limit shall all at the present or in the future, who dwell or wander into that city or other already mentioned, be affected, their property confiscated and handed over to the Siscus, and they shall becomes slaves of the Roman Church, live in perpetual servitude and the Roman Church shall have the same rights over them as the remaining [worldly] lords over slaves and property.”

"All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him." — (Matt. 11:27).

That's such a great line.

Perhaps St. Pius V suppressed the stanza in order to not give attention or a place or honor to the Jews in the liturgy instead then.
